                                                                      felicia m.

                                                                      This is a very sweet house with lots of small cozy spaces. It is set off the path, which is why we chose it - more privacy, distant ocean views. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. The down side of the house is that it is a bit worn. The main picture window has hand smears on it and the glass in the sliding glass door was really hard to open. Several of the double paned windows/glass doors are compromised, which meant they always look foggy. The carpet is pretty worn and needs replacing or at least a deep cleaning, as do the kitchen cabinet doors and some of the furniture. We stayed for a week and these things became less predominant in our awareness as the days went on, but were visually dominant (and a bit disappointing) when we first arrived. I realize this is a rental home and it is often the case that things look used and worn, but I have stayed in other Sea Ranch homes that were a bit more sparkling.

                                                                      We were very disappointed in this review as all our clients have been very happy with their stay.

                                                                      We have notified our housecleaner of the fingerprints on windows, the need for a deep cleaning of the carpet, and the need to lubricate the sliding glass doors.

                                                                      Charming typical Sea Ranch house

The house was clean and well set up and we were lucky enough to meet Peter when we arrived and he personally explained things to us. (Note to any future guests: read the book Peter is writing about his experiences in Vietnam. A powerful story) We've never stayed in place before on vacation and so didn't know what to expect. Needless to say, the entire experience of the house and Sea Ranch exceeded our expectations. We'd love to return and stay longer next time, two weeks was not enough. Eating out was wonderful: The Sea Ranch Lodge was great, we loved the Cafe Azul (some of the best fish and chips ever), and for really fancy food (for us, anyways) St. Orres was fantastic. We never used any of the amenities of the Sea Ranch, we were too busy exploring the many coves and beaches when we weren't relaxing in the house, me reading and my wife watching TV. Thank you, Peter and Debbie for making such a wonderful place available.

                                                                      Sea Ranch

The weather was beautiful and the sunsets took your breath away. The house was perfect. We will do this again. Thank You.

                                                                      Staying at Sea Ranch in Breakaway House was a wonderful experience for us. We've never stayed here before so it took us a couple of days to explore and figure out all the access points to the beaches at Sea Ranch but it was worth it. Peter has done a great job on preparing the house and it is extremely comfortable and well set up. Anyone who stays should read the book Peter is writing about his experiences in Vietnam, it's a powerful story. Eating out is a real pleasure, the Sea Ranch Lodge has great food and reasonable prices and there are great restaurants in Gualala, two of our favorites being the Cafe Azul and St. Orres just north of town. I highly recommend Breakaway to anyone who wants to stay on the coast. For us, two weeks was not enough time there.
